Christian Eriksen has made an instant impact for Manchester United after scoring in the behind closed doors friendly against Wrexham.

The 30-year-old was making his first appearance for the Red Devils after completing his free transfer move yesterday.

The MEN report that the Danish playmaker was joined in the starting line-up by fellow new signing Lisandro Martinez who completed his move just two hours before the clash at Carrington kicked off.

Raphael Varane was also reportedly part of the side that started the clash against the National League side.

Given that Eriksen and Martinez both featured against the non-league side, it’s highly likely that Erik ten Hag will take the pair to Oslo, Norway, for Saturday’s clash against Atletico Madrid.

The former Ajax manager will probably select his strongest squad for the game against last season’s Champions League last-16 conquerors.

Cristiano Ronaldo was reportedly at Carrington to watch his United teammates play in the behind closed doors friendly.

The 37-year-old returned to Carrington yesterday alongside his agent Jorge Mendes to discuss his future at the club.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s camp has made it no secret that United’s number seven wants to be playing in the Champions League next season.

But while United and Ten Hag have reiterated Ronaldo isn’t for sale no offers have been submitted for the Portugal captain.

With Ronaldo yet to be pictured training, it’s highly unlikely that he’ll feature in this weekend’s games or even against Brighton.
